After years of volunteering in Nordic community driven projects and associations in Australia, we decided to start The Nordics as a way to support the vibrant Australian – Nordic community. Our roots and long experience of working and living in Australia has given us great connections across the large pool of talented expats, students and working holiday visitors from Sweden, Denmark, Norway, Finland, and Iceland.
The Nordics is a new online job board which helps Australian employers connect with job seekers from the Nordic countries living temporary or permanently in Australia, be it for short gigs, casual projects, or contract and permanent employment. Our purpose is to foster closer ties and increase cultural exchange between Australia and the Nordic countries, with particular emphasis on young professionals.
At The Nordics, we focus on jobs within; retail & sales, hospitality, office, labour, nanny, and farm work. Jobs where a great sense of service is appreciated and a reliable and hard-working approach valued. On The Nordics you also find companies advertising for internships. A great way for some of our candidates to gather work experience in Australia and a way for employers to trial a candidate before an employment.
- We help Australian employers to find great candidates
- We help our awesome community find their next job in Australia
- We help with one-day assignments to permanent employments
- We take the friction out of recruitment by backing our service with a money-back guarantee
Johanna, Anders, and Jonas make up the leadership team running The Nordics, supported by a wider team of sales and admin colleagues. As emigrants from the Nordic countries, we have lived and worked in Australia for more than 10 years.
Johanna left Sweden for Australia in 2005. With a Master in Communications, Bachelor in Media, and 10+ years of work experience, she brings a passion for small businesses and friendly, community-driven entrepreneurship. Liaising with Scandinavian organisations, she manages the contact with key stakeholders, coordinates internal & external communications activities, and plans and executes events and social media activities. Also a proud author of a published book, a well-travelled globetrotter and mum to two gorgeous little girls.
Anders first came to Australia as a student in 1999 and has volunteered extensively in Sydney’s Swedish-Australian community for many years. He is the author of the book Stora Australienmanualen (=”The Big Australia Manual”) which is a Swedish step-by-step handbook for migrants and backpackers making the jump down under, the admin behind the Facebook Group “Swedes In Sydney” with more than 11000 members, and the manager of SwedesInAustralia.com – Sweden’s largest site for friends of Australia.
Jonas set foot in Australia 2007. As the former Swedish Trade Commissioner to Australia & Oceania, he managed the team for 9 years. Jonas is now the Principal Consultant for KingHill Pty Ltd, helping Scandinavian companies and governments build stronger ties in the Australian market. After working closely with the Scandinavian embassies in Australia, the Scandinavian-Australian Chambers of Commerce, and Nordic multinationals, Jonas brings a wealth of insights into how to assist Australian companies in their recruitment and business development.
